    Alpine KTP44 wiring ?

    Can someone please look at my wiring for the Amp and let me know if it is correct.
    Also, I have 2 wires which dont seem to be connected. Any ideas ???
    Don't worry about the neatness, it is only rough until I check it is ok.
    Thanks.

    Not to bring up old stuff:

    Your wiring looks good, the blue/white wire that is coming from the amp on the (power in/speaker out connector) side doesn't need to be used.
    It's for multiple amps in series, or what ever you want to have a 12v + trigger for when the amp is on.
    The blue wire on the Subaru harness is a power antenna output ( if I remember correctly). there's 2 on the aftermarket harness.

    I have the same amp in my XV, well 2 of them bridged for 90Wx4 RMS driving kicker KS 6.5"
    I did the same thing till I replaced the HU.

    No that is on a different connector, the power and speakers are on there own connector.
    With this amp or any, the steering wheel controls will still work.

    currently I have changed my factory radio, and am still able to use steering wheel controls by using a "aswc-1" adapter. (works with pioneer)
